It's framework changes to deal with the sort of problems that balancing alone cannot. I'd say some things are better now (new options and champ viability overall, looking at recent tournies) while others need more work (item versatility and stat balancing).
So, we usually do these things to make sure we can solve some of the long-standing problems. The cost of that can often come with short-term balance issues while we work the kinks out.
